Sturm, Ruger (RGR) starts off like a speeding bullet, climbing 7.2% after the firearms company says it's stopped taking new orders due to overwhelming demand, having received bookings for over 1M units in Q1. Sturm, Ruger expects to "resume the normal acceptance of orders by the end of May." Smith & Wesson (SWHC +12.17%) flies higher also. (PR)
